Hollywood Studios Character Dance Jam

The Character Dance Jam is basically designed to fill the void between the closing of the Monsters University Homecoming dance party (NOT THE MEET AND GREET) and the September 13th Villains Event.  It makes use of the stage area and many of the characters that appear for Character Palooza randomly are at this event.  The Character Dance Party will only continue through September 12.

It’s basically performed in three 20 minute sets.  Each set has different characters available to dance with.  IT’S NOT A MEET AND GREET, there are NO AUTOGRAPHS.  It runs from 4:30 to 8:30 pm nightly and here’s some characters that you might find with some videos.

With that said, many people try to turn it into a meet and greet and the characters tend to just walk away and dance with someone else.  It takes 40 t 60 minutes to see every character given the rotations.  I tend to be down on Dance Parties because it’s become so passe in Walt Disney World, but I also try to put on the glasses of the vacationing guest and noticed that everyone had huge smiles when they saw their favorite characters dancing and having fun with their families.  Given the large number of characters, including some that are otherwise hard to find, it is a brief, positive event for Hollywood Studios.

  1. We love a good dance party! We won’t be there until 9/24 so I’m hoping for some good “limited time magic” while we’re there!

  2. We saw this on its first night, Monday Sept.2. We had been waiting for Character Palooza for over an hour & they were a no show. I talked to a cleaner who said he saw some of the villians in front of the hat around 5:30, we made our way there close to 6:30 & saw lots of characters, some of them were Rafiki, Tigger, Eeyore, the kids even had their picture taken with Meeko 🙂 The music was really loud, hubby didn’t enjoy that (GRRRR!) so we told him to meet us near Fantasmic while we went on our search for more pressed pennies!….Not sure why character palooza was a no go, there had been thunder & lightning “in the area” around 5:30 but there was no rain & it was really hot!!…Why couldn’t that cleaner have come by earlier!? 🙂
